[laughter] i devoted my time to trying to figure this country out precisely because i think it is the one arab country that is truly strategic. not only because it is the world's largest exporter of oil, which sustains the western way of life, but because saudi arabia, i am convinced, will be critical in the ultimate resolution of what is the proper islam which is going on now between the radicals, jihadists if you will, and the more modernizing muslims. and that very battle also goes on inside saudi arabia. to try to understand this society, i knew you would like someone coming to to write a book about america, you wouldn't be able to go to washington and new york and claim to understand america. so i had to be confident that i could get outside of

for the next, massive killing in this country for us to get religion on this issue. senator feinstein, i was with her last night, and while she was very disappointed in what she heard from majority leader reed-mack, she was very clear about taking this to it's full and complete resolution. all of us have got to say to our colleagues in congress that fear is not an option. fear of not being read elected, we are paralyzed right now. we have to stop it. >> is there anything that congress can pass to curb the piling -- violence? there is nothing that can be done that would protect our children in the vast majority of america, do you agree with that? >> i refuse to believe that. i am hoping that we will pass some version of a repeal of a writer that has been attached to the appropriations bill. all of us are trying to work to repeal the amendment, which means that it would make it easier for law enforcement to conduct gun tracing efforts. right now they are preventing so many ways. i think there are some measures. uphill battle, but we have to ask the american people that this is a wake-up ca

language, shared the same religion faith and history. at the end of the war, what could we have done to stop it? one thing is a vital free press. men and women set on telling the truth. the faults in the intelligence, the alternative paths that the leaders have failed to explore and an estimate of the horrors to come. tonight we discussed the build-up to the war and the bad decision to bury so much of it. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, finishing the job. president obama is back on u.s. soil fresh from his well-received trip to the middle east and today he jumped right back into the fight for second-term agenda, demanding that congress take action on immigration. >> we've taken real action from congress, bipartisan groups in the house and senate, working to tackle this challenge. i applaud them for that. we are making progress but we've got to finish the job because this issue is not new. emp pretty much knows what is broken. everybody knows

a lot of metrics by silicon valley standards that people look for, ethnicity, religion, personality type. >> reporter: about you end up here, you go through boot camp. >> remost hove the hoodie. take it off right now. >> be on time. geeks are notorious for being late. >> it has been great. i met two people. one of them i was in a relationship with for a while. >> reporter: and amy boasts results. 45 couples in exclusive relationships and nearly 20 marriages. >> wow. nuptials too. lori, seems very pricey along the way. are singles, you know, really willing to pay that much for a date? clearly you have some that walked down the aisle, but in great volume, really? >> yeah, look, $20,000 for eight matches. it seems insane, but the idea is people are willing to pay this. i got on the phone with amy today, she said i'm seeing a boost because it is warming up and geeks want to come out of their caves, stop coding and meet people. the idea is time is money. they're building these companies. they have everything. they have a lot of money, but the one thing they don't have is love so they go to am

this debate and they talk about religion and the debate of same sex marriage, a lot of people the knee-jerk reaction is the bible condemns this, the bible condemns this. what do you say to that? >> well, certainly if you look for the witness scripture you're not going to find anything about gay marriage. you're going to see scattered passages about homosexuality but because it's on long-term monogamous between same sex couples, that silence we need to understand it. the bible says as much about gay marriage as it does about the internet. and we are living in a different time. and our church as a witness to couples that are very powerfully in love with each other and are witnessing in their faith. one of the things we say in the wedding ceremony in the united methodist liturgy is the couple creates a new ministry for the church. well, our congregation has been blessed by the witness of gay and lesbian couples who have been in those long-term relationships who have a deep commitment that it's about love, it's not about other things that people want to raise up around issues with scriptur

time. i'm not accusing everybody who's against gay marriage as bigotry. it's true that some religions treat that, which may or may not be bigotry. >> this case is the fact that the equal protection clause will create a new class. >> that's the state of this country, and individuals have a right to be treated the same way as everybody else. and that is at the core of this debate. >> a tricky question. but it violates the equal protection clause. you have to create a new class of people. >> do we need more individual rights, or is this a question about marriage? those are two different -- they may be related, but they're two different things. >> that's a very important question. the question before the supreme court, regardless of who's changing their mind on it or whose loved one is gay. who among us doesn't have a loved one who's gay. that's a given. the question is whether the 14th amendment clause should create a new class of people? the supreme court hasn't done that in 30 years. >> it's about whether the equal protection clause protects people who have the right to marry. >> that'

of religion or faith and that causes the tradition and women to the to be limited or the girl or a child not to be sent to school and therefore we issued a strong statement of the elders about three years ago now saying that the leaders should champion the quality of girls and women that should be part of their spirituality and their faith and most of them are men. [applause] and then we said that's all very well but what are we going to do practically? and that brought us to the early child marriage issue and because marriage isn't a private thing it is sanctioned in some religious way and therefore it was a good example. i was aware of the expense of this in certain countries but by and large we underestimated and the archbishop is honest about saying that he totally underestimated the numbers that we are talking about. 10 million girls a year. that is 100 million girls in a decade or married without their consent, and very often without their knowledge on today itself way before they are ready for it physically or emotionally. we went to ethiopia where blah, -- the blah is and they we

are secular in their outlook, who believe that the separation of religion from the state is the salvation of the country, that is the natural ally of the united states, not the islamic side. i think there should be more support for the politics of secularism in iraq. it would not be wrong. in fact, i would say and be necessary and highly desirable for the americans to support their natural allies, which i happen to believe represent the future of iraq and i myself am part of, at a personal level. so, there is this conflict, and this conflict is not resolved on the boards. the outcome of this will depend on how much the united states is willing to put into the right factors to get iraq moving in the right direction. if they fail, it will be very unfortunate, but the people who will pay the price will be the people of iraq and american interests in the region. >> very quickly, the european perspective on the u.s.-iraq relationship. >> i think many people looking at that relationship feel that the u.s. wants to forget about iraq, start looking at it through the rearview mirror, look beyond.

't matter how you find religion, as long as you do. i don't know if it's the drop in poll numbers or wants a legacy arealizes you can't have one without talking to republicans. either way it's a constructive thing. >> you can't govern if you don't have relationships and can't have relationships if you don't look at each other face-to-face and spend time together. may not always be pleasant, but it's got to be done and are you convinced-- you're one of the senators that had dinner with him thursday night at the hotel, is he being a work horse or a show horse? >> that's the ultimate question. time will tell. he asked me to put the dinner on, so, i did, i picked some republicans thought would be interested talking to the president. i know many more would have been interested. we're kind of limited number so i picked republicans i thought the president would enjoy talking to. if he's going to be a work horse he and his administration have to get in the room with the republicans to find a way to solve our budget problem. you can't do this campaigning, and i think he realizes being campaigner in
